The UMA electoral committee decided to stock to online voting in efforts to cut down on expenses as they revealed that they are short on funding.
According to the UMA leaders, they won’t have to incur costs of paying people to count the ballots which makes it cheaper than physical voting.
Despite a section of contestants coming out to challenge the digital voting, it looks like their efforts did not yield any fruits.
Some have since regretted paying their money to the electoral committee to contest for the different positions.
